I love clean living, whether it’s inside my home, office, car, yard, and even my handbag. So if I am going to keep everything uncluttered on the outside, I’ve got to remember to keep it all as clean as possible on the inside . . . of myself! Over the holiday break from classes I had some time to watch TV and fell in love with all of the healthy advice provided by the Dr. Oz Show and web-site. So much invaluable information on nutrition is shared from a variety of experts that helps us understand just how much each organ of our bodies is affected by what we put into them. Dr. Oz has developed an especially effective de-tox and energizing green smoothie that’s high in fiber, rich in vitamins, and low in calories.
I found several other green drinks/smoothies on Pinterest that have been given a nod for success that I’d like to try simply for variety. I’ve put those together below, along with the correct citation of their origins for you. Each of their creators say that they really have an increased level of energy to get through their busy days. Other benefits discovered are better weight loss, improved digestive and immune systems, and more radiant skin, nails, and hair! And who doesn’t need and want those?
